With this weekend out of the way and last weeks recovery week completed time to get back to work. As last week was recovery week and I was pretty exhausted from all the excitement this weekend I dd not do a summation of last week. It really was not necessary as the week was really focused on my first 5k run and its conclusion. Now the focus is on my first triathlon. I have other 5k runs coming up, but they are extended training and events that are not as important as my first one. I will have a write up of my 5k race this weekend out later today. Also, as this is the start of the next phase of periodization, the base 2 phase, I will put up phase goals for the next 4-5 weeks tomorrow morning. But for now, lets get down to setting this weeks goals so I can get to work while I getting my blog posting caught up.
This week is basically aimed at pretty much mimicking what I did the week before I started my recovery week.
- Total Training Time:9 hours. About the same as the week before recovery
- 2700 Meters of swimming – 900 per session
- 20 Miles by bike
- Continue with pilates and spin class
- Do well in my second 5k Saturday/Sunday evening
Pretty much I just want to hit the same level and intensity as I did the week before recovery so I can build off that next week and the weeks till the next recovery period. Last phase was pretty good with good improvement seen across the board, I just want to continue to push the improvement and increase my endurance. At the end of the week I will be replacing my long run with a 5k race that occurs at 1:50 A:M on Nov 4th. Just finish my first race and getting ready for my second! Later I will post a race report. Just happy to get my goals for this week figured. Somehow I did not realize my next race is this Saturday/Sunday! Til next time.
